Elementary trailer – Sherlock in modern-day New York

Here's a trailer for Elementary, CBS's own modern update of Sherlock Holmes, following the Beeb's brilliant success in Sherlock. Jonny Lee Miller is the sleuth and Lucy Liu plays Watson. See what you think. To me it doesn't seem to have the edge that Steven Moffat's Sherlock, and JLM plays the part a bit too jokily. Radio Times also has a piece about Moffat saying that the US version is too far removed from the original stories. See what you make of it – comments below!
